Affordable Dwelling Unit Program
Overview
The Loudoun County Affordable Dwelling Unit (ADU) program provides newly constructed, affordable rental and for-sale housing for income-eligible citizens who live or work in the county. You can access our brochure online:


Background on the ADU Purchase Program
The Affordable Dwelling Unit (ADU) purchase program enables eligible first time homebuyers with moderate income the opportunity to purchase a newly constructed or resale ADU townhouse or condominium. First-time homebuyers desiring to purchase a home must have a total household income more than 30% and less than 70% (65% for condominium purchases) of the area median income based on the Primary Washington Metropolitan Statistical Area). Prices typically range from approximately $120,000 to $180,000.

These properties are subject to restrictive covenants related to refinancing and transfer of the property. The homes are located throughout Loudoun County. Preliminary eligibility restrictions apply to the program. Also, more information is available online through the ADU Resales website.

Note: An ADU purchaser can use a Realtor to assist in the homebuying process.  The maximum allowable real estate commission is 1 1/2%.  The 1 1/2% real estate commission will be added to the sales price.  * The ADU purchaser must provide the Realtor's name, contact information and a copy of the "buyer's agreement" prior to writing a contract.
